Pepsi Phone P1s is official: fizzy Android with a Twist

Remember the Pepsi Phone? Yep, it exists and is now in a crowdfunding campaign with Pepsi branding on it, believe it or not. While branding itself doesn't make a phone unique, the specs-to-price ratio is pretty svelte, too.

The Pepsi Phone P1s will come with a 5.5" 1080p 2.5D screen, an octa-core 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card, a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP selfie taker, a 3,000 mAh battery, as well as a finger scanner at the rear. Given that the P1s campaign is in China, you can bet that the device sports dual SIM card slots, too. The Pepsi Phone is to run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, with an overlay called dido OS 6.1 sprinkled on top of it.

While all of this may sound like the typical boilerplate Chinese midranger these days, the Pepsi logo on the back, and the matching wallpaper certainly give the phone a... Twist. Furthermore, while the early backers' $94 pricing with an exclusive blue version has been already sold out, the Pepsi Phone P1s can be had for the equivalent of $110 now, with a release date pegged for December 3rd. Any Android soda aficionados?

"with an overlay called dido OS 6.1 sprinkled on top of it" You know, I totally read that as something else. That's what happens when you stay out all night drinking.

I think if somehow you could remove the painted word "Pepsi" then it is great. No one will even think that it is a Pepsi phone.

man $110 phone, with fingerprint scanner, the gap between $800 Android smartphone and cheap Android smartphone is even smaller. i quite like the design, no ugly physical home button, and no ugly on-screen buttons either. if it comes to my country, i would definitely grab one.

At this rate, no OEM is gonna make money while iOS rakes 99% of the profits.
